(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – Just five days after falling to Ohio Dominican 3-0, Walsh rebounded to defeat the very same team 2-1 at Panther Stadium on Thursday evening. The win gave the Cavaliers (3-2-1, 1-2-1) their first conference win of the year while handing the Panthers (3-3, 2-1) their first.
The Maroon and Gold had to come from behind to get the victory as the Panthers opened the scoring in the 23rd minute on a goal by Ryan Kasprzak on a deflection off of a header.
It wasn't until the second half that the Cavaliers scored the equalizer on a set piece. Dwight Van Dyke took a corner kick that was flicked on by Gary Canam to a waiting Steven Taylor who headed it in during the 68th minute.
Tom Jackson played the entire game in goal to improve to 1-1-1 on the season. He made seven saves on the night on 21 shots faced. Walsh managed 12 shots with six on goal.
The Cavs now set their attention to arch-rival Malone. They'll head to Canton Central Catholic to take on the Pioneers on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
